Clearly - and thankfully - the "classic" PC has become a legacy 
product. The market is evolving in many directions. The notion that 
the PC in the office and information appliances in the home will 
evolve down the same path is absurd. I just saw a stat in a NYTimes 
story about the proposed IBM sale that was quite interesting.

  "We've been in the post-PC era for four years now," Mr. Schwartz 
said, noting that last year a billion wireless handsets were sold 
compared with 100 million personal computers.
